Helen Mirren wants to play President Trump

Helen Mirren has already played Queen Elizabeth. Now she wants to take on President Trump.

The legendary British actress said she’d love the chance to try her hand at the head of state across the pond.

“I’d be so funny as Trump,” Mirren told the Hollywood Reporter.

“I love it. I’ve almost got the hair! I mean, what a fascinating character. What an extraordinary character. I mean, that’s a character, isn’t it, the real thing? I would say real life is so much more interesting than anything you can make up, you know. But you know, a fantastic sort of slightly Shakespearean character. He may have a Shakespearean fall, I don’t know but you know, he is an extraordinary character.”

Mirren, who, at 72, is only a year older than Trump, said the President’s mannerisms wouldn’t be difficult to duplicate.

“I don’t think that would be too difficult to penetrate (his psychology) quite honestly,” she said.

“You look at the upbringing. You look at the schooling, the father, the mother. I don’t know much about Mr. Trump’s background, but if I was to play him, I would definitely start there. You have to start with the child, and the child is very much in Trump.”

While Alec Baldwin is currently the most famous Trump impersonator, frequently playing the President on “Saturday Night Live,” everyone from Meryl Streep to Johnny Depp has taken a spin at the role.
